I hope your weekend was a good one.
I have got to say that my weekend really turned out great.
As you might know, I turned 55 years old on Friday. Last year we were all crashing into a wall of terror and fear as Corona hit us right around my birthday.
This year, well … It does feel like we have turned a corner. The pandemic is not at ALL over. We are still very MUCH living our lives Under The Black Umbrella. But, there is hope, after all.
There is light starting to seep thru the thick, black fabric of the awning above us all.
So my 55 birthday turned out very, very good.
I took my regular long walk on Friday morning. And even though it was cloudy it was SO warm. I had a wonderful Facetime-convo with my beloved sister almost throughout the entire walk.
Mid-day I got a flower delivery, and the sender was Mike, Karolinas boyfriend. OHHHH boy, did that surprise me BEYOND!! Let me tell you, it floored me. How nice can a young man be? THIS is how you win the heart of your “mother-in-law”, haha.
I also enjoyed a semmelkladdkaka (a fantastic Swedish pastry, a sticky cake made with almond paste) with whipped cream.
My good friend Lotta made that one for me, sooo nice!!! And, in the afternoon my BEST neighbor—and my really good friend Ingrid—came over and surprised me with Prosecco and strawberries. This made me so very happy and surprised. We enjoyed the bubbly on my deck in the afternoon sun.
THE perfect way to enjoy a super good and relaxed dinner.
I got some good, good gifts as well.
My owl family got bigger! YAY!!
I got more hiking gear as well. I got Air Pods, yay!! And, I am going to get the new iPhone 12 Pro as well. BUT, it’ll have to wait for a while. Until I am fully vaccinated, that is. I do not want to visit an Apple Store right now and sit there and wait until all files are transfered from my old phone into the new one.
YEAH, YEA and YES, I know one can do all this at home. BUT, I am a person who wants a pro to help me when it comes to the transfer of all apps etc. We are not really techies at all, Peter and I.
SO, the new iPhone will have to wait until we are vaccinated.
Two true cuties are now members of the ever growing owl population in my house.
I am not taking ANY chances these lasts few weeks before I get my shot.
I am going to be more careful than ever.
BUT, people, it was a really good birthday. And it feels totally cool being 55 years old.
Have a good Tuesday!!!
